St. George • St. George police say one of their officers shot a dog three times over the weekend after it charged at him.

The confrontation happened Sunday after neighbors reported aggressive dogs running through the neighborhood.

Police say the officer who responded found four dogs running loose and was trying to find their owner when the dog charged him.

Authorities say the officer shot the dog once but it kept going after him, so he shot two more times.

The dog's owner took the animal to the veterinarian with injuries that don't appear to be life-threatening.

St. George animal control officers say the homeowner had eight dogs at the residence, well over the two-dog limit in city ordinance. Animal control officers confiscated five of the dogs.
